SciDevNet: Africa’s R&D voice needed on use of solar engineering

"Experts discuss solar radiation management (SRM) governance in Kenya. They add that more R&D on SRM is needed in Africa to help address climate change. But an expert says that Africa cannot fund SRM tech because it is costly."

Huffington Post: A Sunshade to help Southern Africa Cope with Climate Change?

"But Africa must look hard at uncomfortable options or face being left behind by other countries with fewer scruples. Specifically, it is important to consider how regional geoengineering initiatives could help to protect southern Africa from some of the more damaging impacts of climate change."

Care2: African Countries Pledge Enormous Reforestation Program

"A number of countries across the African continent have agreed to a monumental re-forestation program at the COP21 climate summit. Called AFR100, it’s goal is to restore 100 million hectares – or around 1,000,000 square kilometers – of pristine forest. For those counting, that’s larger area than France and the UK combined."

allAfrica: Geoengineering the Climate - a Cautionary Tale for Africa, Asia and Planet Earth

"Naomi Klein's book 'This Changes Everything' shows how climate change and the bleak future we are marching toward are inextricably bound up with unfettered capitalism. To preserve capitalist excesses, hi-tech fixes for warming - like Solar Radiation Management - may be employed that hasten the demise of large parts of Africa and Asia and the natural world."

Bellamy, R., et al. (2014) Deliberative Mapping of options for tackling climate change: Citizens and specialists 'open up' appraisal of geoengineering

Bellamy, Rob; Chilvers, Jason; Vaughan, Naomi E. (2014): Deliberative Mapping of options for tackling climate change: Citizens and specialists 'open up' appraisal of geoengineering. In Public Underst Sci. DOI 10.1177/0963662514548628.

"Here, we present the findings from the first ‘upstream’ appraisal of geoengineering to deliberately ‘open up’ to a broader diversity of framings, knowledges and future pathways. We report on the citizen strand of an innovative analytic–deliberative participatory appraisal process called Deliberative Mapping."

Linköping University Climate Engineering Programme (LUCE)

"The projects included in LUCE aim to examine how GE is made sense of in media, scientific texts and focus groups among laypersons in Sweden and the UK. The projects will also investigate implications for the governance of GE."

San Francisco Chronicle (SFGate): One scientist's battle to combat climate change (updated)

Updated portrait of Ken Caldeira formerly named 'Warning from climate science front lines'. "He and his research team were pumping the equivalent of antacid over a patch of corals that emerges from the sea at low tide, attempting to re-create the conditions before carbon dioxide emissions from cars and factories began altering ocean chemistry."
